leaving your kids in the car???

I just went to put gas in the car and I brought my four month in with me.  I was just getting gas, nothing else and the woman behind the counter said "wow, do you bring our baby in every time?"  Of course I do, and I told the woman that, and she said I wouldn't believe the amount of parents that just left the kids in the car.  Do you leave your kids if you're just running in and you can still see the car?

 I often leave my 10 year old in the car. I don't see any point in dragging her in to the ATM or to pay for gas.

I have an 8 year and a 6 year old if they don't want to come in and I can see them I lock the doors and they stay in.

I will leave my 9 & 6 year old in the car to use the ATM machine and to check the PO box, but that is about it.

We don't pump our gas here so I don't even get out of the car to pay. I just hand the person my card or cash.

No, but only because my kids are too young to get out of the car themselves or help younger siblings. When they're old enough to get in and out by themselves, I'm sure I'd leave them in the car.

i take my 5 and 2 year old inside with me every time. which is why my husband usually just takes my car to the gas station real quick to fill it up for me :)
